Seattle Public Schools is reminding local families that bell times will be changing this upcoming 2016-17 school year.
According to the district, the change in school start times is designed to improve academic outcomes for secondary students.
They are providing a list of resources on their district website, from child care and nutrition, to after school activities and safety and security, to help families make the transition.
SPS has also prepared this video to provide information about the changes:
The district recognizes the challenges families face and has identified resources to help as they restructure their schedules, including potential effects on before and after school childcare, after school activities and nutrition programs.
The updated bell schedule is posted online and lists specific bell times for each school.
